In Honor Of Memorial Day

Happy Saturday All !!! It was a soggy day here.. Lots of rain and thunderstorms so I had plenty of time to craft. Since Monday is Memorial Day I made a card that I would like to dedicate to each and every service member past and present.

Plain white cardstock..distressed with Fired Brick Tim Holtz Ink
The rosette was made using the Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge along with the star in the center.
I added some bling to the stars around the edges to make them sparkly (sorry i know they are hard to see)
The sentiment came from K Andrew Design Set "Freedom Isnt Free"
I also used the same set to stamp the star.

The challenges I am entering this card into:

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays - Stars and Stripes
Little Scrap Pieces - Use Red
More Than Favors - Wacky Wednesdays #71 Memorial Day

Hello All!!! What a beautiful day... yes it did rain here a little bit (I think it did it to water my gardens for me (:  )
But now its warm and overcast but my baby chicks are loving it !!

For this project I used a sketch that I got over at The Paper Variety for their current challenge

A Late Happy Mothers Day!

Hello All!! Hope everyone had a beautiful Mothers Day!
I had hopes of posting a card for each day this weekend but I got caught up in planting my flowers since it was soo beautiful outside and WOW am I glad I did it this weekend because this week here we are looking at alllll rain Yuck! But I guess that makes for more craft room time! :)

I wanted to post a card that I made this weekend for my mom to give to my grandmother on Mothers Day.

This card I made with a damask print paper layered with plain black paper to make it pop 
The flowers I made with a paper doily that I had left over from Valentines Day and I just used my 1" 
Hole punch and cut a small strip of green paper for the stem. 
The Framed sentiment I cut using the cricut then added a white piece of cardstock on top of it with a little 
Tim Holtz ink around the edge of the paper. 

<3 Until Next time

Mother's Day

Well Happy Friday everyone! Since Sunday is Mother's Day I wanted to post a card that I made for my mom. I still have a few to make but this one I am super happy with the layout and colors so I wanted to post this one today and I will post one for tomorrow and one for Sunday also :)

I am entering this card into the Mothers Day Challenge at Celebrate the Occasion 

 Theme is Mothers Day 

 For today's card I wanted to make something super cheery and happy
For this card I used a plain purple background 
then with patterned papers i used pieces from my scrap box.
I just used simple pink ribbon for the bow and the 
butterfly cuts came from the Cricut Cartridge "April Showers" 
I dont remember where the scalloped circle came from because I had it cut out 
from a previous cut. But I did take my hole punch around the scallops to make it look a little different. 
Then I stamped the white circle with Happy Mother's Day and I used the sentiments from K Andrew Designs

I hope you enjoyed my card! <3 Until Tomorrow! :)

WIggle Worm

Happy Monday All!! Hope everyone had a fun Scrapbooking/Card Making weekend!! :)
I know I did!!

So the card I made for today was a worm but I wanted him to wiggle so I used the tutorial I saw on
Getting Cricky's website a while ago about making your own wobbles. I really wanted to see how easy it was to make and I just love how it turned out :) Hope you enjoy

So for this card I used a pre-made card base from DCWV
Then I topped it with a piece of scrap paper I had in my stash
I added some flowers that are Prima Flowers the Botanical mix
then I added a few gold brads to the center of each of them
For the worm I used a cut from April Showers
Then for the sentiment I used my 1" circle punch to cut out 2 circles and stamped them
with K Andrew Design sets: Coffee & Tea TREATS tag alongs and Summertime Splash

I am entering this card into :
